joining us today. as you probably know it was a really, really busy news day. there was a lot going on. the administration released the enrollment numbers for the affordable care act. turns out in the first months of obama care going into effect over 100,000 people enrolled in new health insurance plans. president obama had tried to set expectations low for what the first enrollment numbers would be. his speech last month in boston, for example, noted that in the first month of sign-ups for the massachusetts version of health reform, only 100 people signed none the whole first month. but in massachusetts, eventually the glitches got ironed out, and enrollment numbers went up. and now in massachusetts, there is essentially universal coverage. that state is essentially the template for our national numbers. but the numbers out today, 100,000 people signed up in the first month. in addition, another one million people were determined to be eligible for getting a new play in marketplaces for health insurance. but they have not chosen a plan yet. the overall idea is for everybody to get ins

much for joining this us hour. behold the peaceful transition of power. the transfer of power between people who disagree with one another strongly, but who agree that the democratic process, the vote of the people, is what decides who gets to hold office in this country. the peaceful transition of power between politically opposed forces is really our most noble display of the challenge and the majesty of our democracy. it's also really, personally awkward sometimes. so, yeah, hey, i'm the new guy! really? you're the new guy?! okay. you were the awkward new guy once, too, big guy. transitions can be very awkward. and it's not just awkward transitions for presidents. this was the tiny little outgoing mayor of new york city yesterday, sitting down with the enormous incoming new mayor of new york city. the two of them having what was supposed to be a friendly transition meal together. looked like a lot of things, but friendly was not one of them. for shear caught on tape personal hard to watchness, though, you really cannot beet what happened today, this afternoon, in the executive mans

mccauliffe. joining us now from mccauliffe campaign headquarters, chuck todd, host of "the daily rundown." so nbc news originally said it was too early, now it's too close. what can you tell us? >> reporter: here's what we can tell you about what changed, frankly as the raw vote count came in, sometimes they can hold a have a margin of error. as the night goes on, the polls are corrected a little bit. but as we know, the vote was out, there's about 20% of the vote that's still uncounted, almost all of it is exclusively in northern virginia, why does that matter? because northern virginia is now a heavily democratic area of the state. so as you have noticed, as the vote count has come in, mccauliffe has closed the gap on cuccinelli. cuccinelli performed a -- if mccauliffe does end up performing at where democrats normally do in northern virginia and he does eke out a victory, he's going to have northern virginia, the issue of abortion and women to thank. because it's going to be essentially a tale of two states in virginia, the state of northern virginia voting in one direction, and the r

sally kohn. thank you for joining us. good evening, rachel. >>> thanks to my friends for joining us this hour, as well. for a hot minute in the commonwealth of virginia, not long after the civil war there was a political party called the readjuster party. the democratic party, which was conservative and racist, at the time had been the dominant force in virginia politics for a long time. they were always opposite the republican party or the whig party, depending on the year. but at the other moment, the party challenging the democrats and in fact winning the governorship of virginia, it was not the whigs or the democrats, it was the re-adjuster. i bet there was a thesis of the lost re-adjuster party. i bet i could just google it. he made history, not just because his strange, now forgotten party won that high office. he made history because his time in the state house, his time of governor of virginia in the 1880s, that was the last time that any party in virginia was only able to hold the governorship for one term. before last night, no party in virginia had been turfed out of the

friend. thanks for joining us this hour. the last time this voted for governor in texas, this is the way texas voted if you break it down by race. white people in texas voted for the republican in that race by a 40-point margin. african-americans in texas voted for the democrat in that race by a 77-point margin. latinos in texas also voted democratic, overwhelmingly in that governors' race. latinos rote e voted for the de by a margin of 23 points. of course, in the overall sense, the white population was the largest proportion of the vote overall, so the republican candidate carried the day in that governors race in texas in 2010, but the racial disparities were really, really, really stark. same thing in the presidential race in texas in 2008. it was barack obama running against john mccain. white voters went for the republican by this huge margin. this does not mean that 47% of white people voted republican in texas. it means that white people voted for john mccain by a 47-point margin. black voters picked the democratic candidate for president by a 96-point margin. the black vote
